Neymar's horrific ankle injury outlined PSG's spectacular comeback victory over St. Etienne in Ligue 1 2021-22 on Sunday, November 28. The Brazilian winger had a horrific twist in his ankle during the match and had to be stretchered off. Despite Neymar's absence, 10-man PSG were bailed out of trouble by Lionel Messi, who clinched a hat-trick of assists as Mauricio Pochettino's men consolidated their lead at the top of the table. The match was also a memorable one as Sergio Ramos made his much-awaited debut for his new club after joining them in the summer transfer window from Real Madrid.

Take a Look at the Video of the Injury:

The injury looked really bad from the naked eye and it can be expected that he is ruled out of PSG's fixtures atleast for this year. PSG have a couple of league matches ahead before they play in the Champions League when they face Club Brugge on December 7.
